Reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions caused by the extremely widespread use of computing and telecommunications services in many sectors of the economy is one of the most challenging research topics in the Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) community. A promising trend to increase energy efficiency, and hence reduce GHG footprint, is through cloud computing. Based on virtualization, it reshapes the future of ICT services by enabling several heterogeneous tenants to co-exist and efficiently share the same physical infrastructure.

We present the Green Sustainable Telco Cloud project, supported by Ericsson and Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, aimed at developing the first green cloud model that supports large-scale Telco applications. The presentation will cover energy metering, footprint estimation and GHG optimization paradigms in Telco cloud.
